Dear Santa…

…please don’t be scared off or think me too greedy, but here is my wishlist. In an effort to be less naughty, I  might have left out a few titles!

from left to right:

Victorian Suicides: Mad Crimes and Sad Histories (Barbara T. Gates)

Victorian Sensation: Or, the Spectacular, the Shocking and the Scandalous in Nineteenth-Century Britain (Michael Diamond)

The Vatican to Vegas: The History of Special Effects (Norman M.Klein)

How the Girl Guides Won the War (Janie Hampton)

Living Dolls: The Return of Sexism (Natasha Walter)

Alien Constructions: Science Fiction and Feminist Thought (Patrizia Melzer)

In Other Worlds: SF and the Human Imagination (Margaret Atwood)

Mutants: On Genetic Variety and the Human Imagination (Armand Marie Leroi)

Typecasting: On the Arts and Sciences of Human Equality (Stuart Ewen and Elizabeth Ewen)

The Laboratory of the Mind: Thought Experiments in the Natural Sciences (James Robert Brown)

Human Voice: The Story of a Remarkable Talent (Anne Karpf)

VSI: Forensic Science (Jim Fraser)

The Windup Girl (Paolo Bacigalupi)

The Penguin Complete Novels of Nancy Mitford (Introd. India Knight)

Murder at Madingly Grange (Caroline Graham)

Putting together wishlists is almost as much fun as as giving and receiving books! I’m going to decorate cookies and bake some more Vanillekipferl and Zimtsterne now (I’m the designated baker in the family :D). Wish you all a wonderful Christmas with lots of family, books and cookies!

  1. Santa is probably glad that you could make things clear for him. And, if they don’t all appear? There’s a few to find your way in 2012. Merry Christmas, Bina!

  2. Were these books under the Cristmas tree? They are a fascinating choice. Thank you very much for your beautiful and delicious cookis, by the way.
